Australia

I collect a bit of everything. It's all about what catches my eye :). I love the hunt, so I find most of my treasures at garage sales, markets and op shops.

  34. It's funny you say that, because I've been thinking the same. He/she appears to be wearing a robe, long braid, and there is a band or crown around the head. I'm absolutely clueless lol.
  35. Thanks epson233. You know, I thought it was wood, but my partner thinks otherwise. He seems to think it may have been cast from a mould. It sounds kind of hollow. Perhaps it's painted to look like car...
  36. Thanks mustangtony :)
  37. I've posted mine if you'd like to have a look :)
